On 24 February 2022, Russia launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Since that time, over two million Ukrainians have fled the country. More than 600,000 of them estimated to have come into Poland, and Krakòw has become a hub of support for many of them.
The International School of Kraków (ISK), is committed to providing as much support for those in need as it can.
The entire ISK community has been empowered together in support of the Ukrainian refugees. Our community has been collecting essential supplies, providing transportation, donating money, volunteering at refugee centers, and opening their homes to families in need. The school is acting as a hub for these activities as well as offering scholarships to refugee students coming from our Central and Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA) sister schools and other similar international schools in the Ukraine. All of these efforts are a proud example of everyone’s commitment to being responsible, caring global citizens.
We continue to evaluate local needs and update our list of centers we are supporting, trying to ensure our efforts are being directed to where they are most needed.
We can help …
The current crisis is, without a doubt, bringing people together in support of the refugees from the Ukraine. However, we need to be prepared for the needs to continue, even after the conflict has ended. If you would like to help, or even help more, your support will be immensely appreciated. If you would like to make a monetary donation to support our efforts, please do so here.
